Now it’s a difficult task to drive around in a multi-coloured “mystery machine” and solve ridiculous mysteries about a snow monster who likes to ski, it’s a difficult task for anyone. But for a group of people who are so different to one another it must seem like an eternity to solve a single mystery. Here’s how it is:
Daphne is a supermodel type girl who is a hapless detective who always gets into trouble with the criminal. When you’re in times of trouble and you need back-up from your group and you turn to see this girl fixing her hair and constantly putting on make-up!? Unacceptable! But, she has this pulsating crush on the leader of the “gang” Fred, which makes it even more awkward because he kind of likes her back but Velma also likes Fred.
Velma is a super intelligent person who is hands on when it comes to deciphering cryptic clues, so you can tell she’s a wiz at the crossword. With her intelligence she possesses endless career opportunities yet she’s here, solving easy mysteries – such a waste of brain.
Then you have the “relaxed” guy in Shaggy. The 1960’s hipster who’s all up for peace and love (and Scooby Snacks) in order to solve a mystery but then is afraid and does that hilarious charge away from a floating leaf. What’s worse, he’s joined at the hip to his Great Dane pal, Scooby; the main reason why any child in the world decides to sit down and watch this show. The nonsense gibberish but with a hint and it is a hint, of Standard English. Using his super-sensitive nose he can pick out smells that humans have not evolved to match the capabilities. To add the icing on the cake, he has a nephew called Scrappy, without doubt the one character on the show everybody wants to punch.
With this in mind; the contrast of all these characters, it is clear that they could never date one another. Daphne and Fred would never work out because Fred would get so tired of Daphne’s lack of intelligence and the obsession with hair would drive him insane. It’s like putting a “putter” with a “leaver.” Putters are people who have control in their lives because they put things where they belong. Leavers on the other hand, are too busy enjoying life to remember where they put their belongings. This theory is similar with Fred and Daphne and it’s just never going to happen between them, despite the enigmatic tension between the two.
Take Daphne out of the equation and you are left with Velma. Now, Fred is going to find it difficult, despite possessing some intelligence, to level up to Velma. Although she’s 7 inches shorter than Fred, she will always be correcting him on grammar or punctuation and even sentence pronunciation. This also will drive him up the wall and to look at those ridiculously large glasses will just lead him to give up.
Take Fred out of the equation and you pair up Shaggy and Daphne. Two complete opposites come together, much like the putter and the leaver theory but worse. A messy-haired, loose baggy clothed hippy with a desire to eat dog treats meeting a stunning, hapless redhead who is completely out of his league and therefore will always know that the attention is going to be on her. Survey says…no I’m afraid to say Shaggy.
Remove Daphne out of the equation and pair up Shaggy and Velma. Again, two complete opposites in terms of intelligence and height. The tall nature of Shaggy against the short but the capacity to possess the IQ of Einstein of Velma will always collide in a negative way and to put it blunt – Shaggy will not have a single clue on what Velma is talking about. A blank expression will always be put across his face every time she starts to speak.
